Vent - Martin Busch hut - Similaunhut - glacier Niederjochferner - Similaun. Very nice ascent, nice weather (the sky was clear) and magnificent views!
Skied from the car in a long day, passing the Martin Busch Haus. We had plans for the north face, but the walk from the car to the Haus took too long! Beautiful views from the summit into Italy.
Normal route from Martin Busch Hutte, with Alfredo, Atti e Moda.
Great trip on the skis, great weather during summit day.
From Similaun Hütte, quite easy, but beautiful route. It was my first glacier peak :-)
Started at 3 a.m. at Martin Busch, ascend via Similaunhütte, descended on Marzellkamm. Great trip with excellent conditions.
This is a nice and easy climb. Can be done as a skitour late in the season. Be careful when skiing down the glacier, though.
Nice and long tour because we started from Vent. It was a very nice tour.
In summer 2004, great and easy climb
we started our ruote from Similaun hütte. It was a pleasant walking to the glacier, and the first part of it also. But as we get higher, the wind started to blow harder and harder. At the end the fog and the cloud covered almost everything. We didn't see anything from the top.
Climbed from Similaun Hütte, and vent back to Vent on that day. My father, brother, a friend of mine and I were the company. It was our first glacier tour. We met a lot of nice person on the route...and the girls at Similaun Hütte...
Fast wind and cold on the peak...no view...
With Bram, Maarten en Floor
Climbed "a ridge" on the Similaun during my first alpine course on a very cloudy and stormy day.
Snowshoeing from Martin Busch hut, 6hrs to the top, 2hrs back to hut and 2hrs more back to Vent. We had a wonderful day with crystalclear views from the summit. Lots of wind from the South which was a bit scary on the summitridge. Freezing temperatures up to - 30°C.
Enjoying the newyears eve fireworks driving through Germany back to Belgium, after the climb.
Climbed with my friend Mathias and his girlfriend Veerle.
I enjoy this mountain.
My older daughter and I got to the Similaun hut the previous evening, to enjoy some nice young and old austrian fellow mountaineers, as well as ....delicious Kaiserschmarren !.... Reason for which I was alone to wake up on the next day. We were only five guys on the summit that sunny morning, and I was obviously the younger one !!! Come on....it's not a mountain only fit for fogeys, is it....??? :-))) But so pleasant anyway, and the surroundings are magic.
Nice tour but cloudy!
Nice climb, we started with good weather but the summit was cloudy.
Ideal climb via the Marzellkam with my lady to the crowded top. We descended via Similaunhütte back to Martin Buschhütte.
After surpassing a lot of people, we were alone at the top. Descend to Marzellkamm.
